Charles Manson first heard the album not long after it was released. Manson may have found hidden meanings in songs from earlier Beatles albums,  but, according to Vincent Bugliosi in The Beatles Manson allegedly interpreted prophetic significance in several of the songs, including "Blackbird", "Piggies" particularly the line "what they need's a damn good whacking""Helter Skelter", "Revolution 1" and "Revolution 9",  and interpreted the lyrics as a sign of imminent violence or war.
Further to the betrayal they had felt at Lennon's non-activist stance in "Revolution", New Left commentators condemned The Beatles for its failure to offer a political agenda. Sociologists Michael Katovich and Wesley Longhofer write that the album's release created "a collective appreciation of it as a 'state-of-the-art' rendition of the current pop, rock, and folk-rock sounds".
